Journal). Vol. 2, 100 pages of tight copy and illustrations with no advertisements, is now

(paper) print run, which is now more than half gone.


In addition to TIPS II, the CD version contains extras, including information on our online
course and a database of information valuable to permaculturists. It will also include a full set
of the Permaculture Design Course pamphlets, available separately as a free download from
our web site.

The paper version features color covers but black and white illustrations inside. Otherwise, it is
identical to the CD version. There is no practical way to include the extras with TIPS II on

TIPS II features more than 2-dozen articles and dozens of illustrations, with sections of
Permaculture Basics, Patterning In Permaculture, Useful Plants, Urban Permaculture and a
special treatment of 20 pages on humanure composting (Technology Section). Authors
include Joe Jenkins, Robert Waldrop, Dan Hemenway, Thelma Snell, Noboru Motohashi,
Richard Webb, Bill Mollison, and Lonna Natchigal (graphics article).

See the cover, masthead and Contents page, attached.

The TIPS II CD requires Adobe Reader 7.0 or later, or equivalent PDF-reading software. If your computer is too
old to support this free software, notify us when you mail your order and we will burn a custom CD for you for an
additional $5 (our standard custom burn fee). Or order the paper version while they last.
